Dual Purpose Wedding Favors

When planning a wedding, don't overlook the importance of wedding favors. Wedding favors serve as a “thank you” to your guests, but can also become part of the fun of the wedding reception.

Traditions are changing and it's no longer necessarily the bride's parents who foot the bill for the wedding ceremony and reception. Couples, now more than ever, are paying for their own weddings and may be working with strict budgets. Couples looking to stretch their wedding dollars should opt for wedding favors that also serve a practical purpose. Place card holders favors are one example of this. Coordinate seating arrangements and leave a special keepsake for the wedding guests with this dual-purpose wedding favor.

Other dual-purpose wedding favor ideas include:

  • Candle wedding favors. Decorate the tables with personalized candles that can be taken home by the guests after the wedding.
  • Wine wedding favors. Pop the cork on this idea and leave the guests salivating for more. Order personalized wine bottles for each guest. Supply the wine glasses and leave a wine cork on every table.
  • Weddingbubbles! Leave bottles of personalized wedding bubbles at every table and encourage guests to play. This kind of wedding favor adds to the wedding reception ambiance and encourages fun and laughter.
  • Personalized placemats and/or coasters help protect the table from food and drink, and the guests can bring them home after.
There are many ways to turn wedding favors into dual-purpose gifts. Use your imagination! Your wallet will thank you.
